Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Reasons I Love Book Blogging

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week’s theme was Top 10 Reasons I Love X, so basically this is your chance to rant and rave and gush about whatever you want! Honestly I do sometimes get tired of making lists of books specifically so now is my time to share my love of book blogging! Although I’m sure there are tons of people who have also done this same topic I’m doing it anyways, I just have a lot of feelings about this wonderful blogging community. Also these reasons are in no specific order.

10.) It’s A Fun Hobby

Now this is coming from a person who doesn’t have a ton of hobbies.

So blogging is definitely in my top 5 favorite recreational things to do. I like the sense of purpose it gives me and keeps me motivated to read and write!

9.) I Get To Write (About Something That I Care About)

I adore writing in general and since I don’t exactly have a lot of writing goals these days I like that book blogging gives me great ideas to write about and share with people. I also really enjoy typing so there’s that too.

8.) Books, Books, Books

This is pretty obvious right? I love that book blogging brings so many more books into my life! Just reading reviews and getting recommendations opens up all kinds of new doors when it comes to books options.

7.) Book Recommendations

I kind of mentioned this in the previous reason BUT it’s so important it needs to get discussed on its own. Have I ever told you guys how much I love getting book recommendations? Because I love them. There’s almost nothing better than having a fellow book lover recommend you a new book that they loved and want to share with you as well! I also like to do some recommending myself I mean come on who doesn’t want to push their favorite books onto people?

6.) It Keeps Me Up To Date With New Releases

I remember a time when I would waltz into a bookstore and wander around aimlessly hoping to stumble upon a book I would like. To be honest I didn’t enjoy that too much. There were books that got released and I didn’t even know about them! Book blogging definitely keeps me up to date with what new books are being released and if I would enjoy them or not.

5.) Being Able To Connect With Authors and Publishers

I haven’t exactly done a TON of this yet but I have done a few tweets or Instagram posts where authors have commented back and let me tell you that is FUN. Authors (to us book bloggers and lovers) are definitely celebrities and when they take the time out of their day to respond to you it really makes you feel like a rockstar. I love that blogging gives me more of a chance to get to know my favorite authors better!

Also being able to connect with publishers is pretty great too it keeps you up to date on new releases as well as potentially receiving ARCs. And come on ARCs are pretty exciting right?

4.) Getting To Read ALL Opinions On Books

I actually like being able to read both positive and negative opinions on books it gives me a chance to REALLY see if I should give that book a chance. Positive reviews let me know what I will potentially love about a book and negative reviews let me know what I potentially won’t like about a book. Both are great and book blogging does a great job of opening my eyes to all kinds of different opinions on books.

3.) Getting To Share My Own Opinions On Books

Of course if I like reading other opinions so it would just go to show that I like sharing my own opinion as well. Gives me a chance to rant and rave about books I’ve read, both good and bad!

2.) Being Able To Chat Books With Other Bloggers

One of my absolute favorite parts of book blogging is being able to talk about books obviously! I don’t have many friends or family members who love books as much as me so being able to talk about books in the book blogging community is an absolute joy. I mean who better to chat books with than other book lovers? And this blogging community has THOUSANDS of book lovers to talk with!

1.) The Other Book Lovers and Bloggers

Yes, you wonderful readers and fellow bloggers are my absolute favorite part of being a book blogger. I love everything from getting recommendations of your favorite books to just fangirling over our favorite characters together! Sure I love the books and sharing my thoughts but honestly that wouldn’t be anything if not for you awesome people reading and sharing comments.

You are what makes book blogging an absolute joy for me and I thank you all!

  1. I agree with all of these!
    It’s so hard to find people off-line that love books as much as I do (in fact, it’s hard to find people who don’t think I read too much– as if that’s possible!), so it’s nice to find people who understand.

    Great list! 🙂

    • The community for me is the BEST part about blogging, everyone is wonderful. At first I was worried about trolls and rude people in general but now I realize I didn’t have anything to worry about because the book blogging community looks out for one another and everyone is nice and helpful! 🙂

  2. ALL the reasons why I love book blogging is here in your post and honestly you could not have said (eh…typed?) it better! And yes the community is one of the best parts of book blogging–I think this is a hobby I would have given up on a long time ago if it weren’t for all the supportive bloggers I have met over the past months. I usually blog whenever I feel like it and whenever my outside-of-blogging-life allows me to do so, but yes book blogging definitely gives me motivation in the sense that it makes me sit down and write even when I am feeling too lazy. In fact, I think every aspiring writer should have a blog about something they love because really, with all the craziness going on in my life right now blogging is the one thing that’s helping me practise my writing everyday. It’s definitely one of my favorite hobbies right after napping (yep, that’s a hobby too).

    My TTT’s theme is about a writer who I feel is very underrated. Her name is L. J. Smith, she’s super old, her first novel was released in 1994 or something like that, so she’s been writing about YA for a very long time and I have got to tell you, she’s amazing and not just because of The Vampire Diaries. She’s written other really good books too like the Night World series and The Forbidden Games trilogy. Do give her a try!

    • Thank so much for this wonderful comment! I’m glad you agree with my reasons and I agree with everything you said as well, I love how supportive everyone is as well!
      I’ll have to check out your TTT as well! I have heard of LJ Smith before and while her Night World series just wasn’t really for me The Forbidden Games does sound interesting! 🙂
